One of the most reliable sources in the medium, @ harukaze5719 , has given some revealing data on the new Nvidia graphics cards that they have planned for this 2021. The most important is the possible cancellation of the RTX 3080 Ti.
I don't know fact. Just those are I've heard recently.
3080 Ti -> Cancelled
3060 12G -> End of Feb.
3060 6G -> After 12G variant
3050 -> Q2

This cancellation would be a last minute decision and we do not know exactly what the reasons were. In addition to the RTX 3080 Ti , we also have information on the RTX 3060 and RTX 3050 , with possible release dates.
According to the source, the GeForce RTX 3060 is going to be launched at the end of February and the first to do so will be the version with 12GB of VRAM memory. The version with 6GB of VRAM memory would arrive later, but it is not specified when it will.
Finally, the RTX 3050, the new low-end of the RTX 30 ‘Ampere’ family, would be launched during the second quarter of 2021. This includes the months of April, May or June, so there are still several months until the RTX family ‘Ampere’ is fully completed.
The cancellation of the RTX 3080 Ti does not mean that we cannot see an RTX 3080 Super in the future. A few days ago we received information about an RTX 3080 Super and RTX 3070 Super in preparation from Nvidia.
There are many gamers who are surely waiting for the RTX 3060, the new mid-range card within the RTX 30 family, which should provide similar performance to an RTX 2080. Fortunately, we will not have to wait that long for its launch, as long as this information be trustworthy. We will keep you informed.
